The Journey of the Vajrayana…

‎”The dignity of the human person is real.

The sacredness, the beauty of each one of us—as a fundamental incarnation of the totality—is no different from a star or a galaxy or an atom or the whole universe itself.

The journey of the Vajrayana is to realize this; it’s to know—in our incarnation, in our bodies—that the experience that we have, in its totality, is actually the experience of the universe itself, and that we have access to all of reality [through] our human incarnation.”

Love this, Ben.

This is where Buddhism and the Bhagavad Gita meet and merge like a river.
